The Volcanic Ash Explorer Workflow tool is the basis of a methodology for gathering together information about potential atmospheric volcanic ash and other environmental particulates (EP), and running dispersion models to estimate where the ash may be headed.

The Volcanic Ash Explorer Workflow tool extends the Bent-Hysplit Workflow tool (https://vhub.org/resources/benthysplitwf) and presents a Jupyter 10 Notebook interface when the user clicks the Launch Tool button. The Volcanic Ash Explorer Workflow tool  guides the user through steps for gathering together the required information and running the dispersion models.
